“good for family”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

building A and B is near to the pool and game room !!!
Nice location to each park, almost not far than 30mins drive.
But the internet is really slow. But it is a holiday season so it is reasonable for that.
good place!

Dear Brightpei -- Thank you for the review. I apologize for the speed of the internet service. We're going to look into that. But, you are correct, when everyone is on at the same time, it could slow down a bit. But that's not typical of what our guests experience. We'll see what we can do to boost it during high-occupancy times. Can't wait to see you back with us.

Before I start, I have to say that this review is going to sound unrealistically good, however it really was that fantastic. This is was the best holiday I have ever been on and I've been to Florida 8 times now! Floridays helped make it so. Here are some of the reasons why Floridays helped make it so and why I'd probably never stay anywhere else in Orlando*:
1. Its location is the best place in Orlando; equidistant form all parks and on a non-busy route everywhere can be reached in 15 mins.
2. The accomodation is big. There are 6 of us (2ad, 4 kids 7-17) and we had ample space in the 2 bed. Next time we'll do a 3 bed as the kids are getting older.
3. The service is exemplary; when we arrived we had a bit of drama, it was late, my son saw a large spider in our hire car, I got us safely to the resort and and not only did the receptionist google spiders for us (to see that it was a venomous sac spider) but also arranged for the family to get to our room on a stretch golf buggy whilst I hunted for the spider to get it out of the car :-)
4. The quiet pool is calm and quiet
5. The fun pool is fun and big and never felt crowded.
6. The bar staff, drinks and food are great and you can easily have a short break there before, during or after a park visit.
7. They tidy the room and make beds and change towels daily
8. There is ample close parking
9. The Benihaha restaurant on site is walking distance and we had the best family meal we have ever had. the kids (and us) were enthralled by Cyril's show cooking and the cocktails were delicious.

In all its everything you need on an Orlando Holiday.

See my Naples review for the second part of our holiday (which was also excellent)

* I said I'd never stay anyehere else; in fact I would recommend a Disney Property but with a caveat - do it for a short time, not your whole holiday or it gets too much. Floridays is better as a base away from it, yet in the middle of it.

Room Tip: we were at the back of the resort which is a short drive to the main pool but walking to the quiet p...

Dear BigDaddyUk -- Thank you SO much for the great review. You are right to preface your review, as many don't believe the glowing comments from many of our guests. You were quite detailed and gave good explanations of everything. I'm glad we were able to assist with the issue you had upon arrival in your rental car. I’m pleased that all worked out. Your high praise and recommendation means a lot to us, and I look forward to welcoming you back next time you visit Orlando.

I'd like to recommend other visitors to Orlando to stay at this hotel. Perfect for family with kids. Unit was very clean and the staff very responsive. Central to all major attractions and can't ask more from a hotel.

Floridays is one of those unique places you’ll find that offers it all! Great location, less than 15 min driving from any park and attraction. A fantastic service all-round the resort. A family atmosphere that makes you feel completely at home. And to top all that a fantastic cost benefit! My second time around and hope to be back many other times.

Room Tip: near the pool is always better!

We were very pleased with the Floridays Resort! Our 2 bedroom suite was roomy and very nicely appointed. After traveling 20 hours nonstop to Orlando we were so thankful for the early checkin!!! The checkin staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Didn't use the pool or restaurants as we were only there 2 days, but would love to retun for a longer stay!

We stayed here for 4 days and were extremely happy with the accommodation. Our two-bedroom apartment was clean, spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. We were able to cook meals in the evenings instead of having to go out to restaurants, because all essential utensils were provided. It was also great to be able to catch up on our laundry, instead of paying hotel prices to have it done, since the apartment was equipped with a washer and dryer. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were large and the pool area is very nice. For the high standard of accommodation offered, this resort provides excellent value for money as rates are very reasonable. Oh, and the staff were pleasant too.

Stayed here for the Eukanuba World Championship Dog show, this facility was not only pet friendly but went out of the way to welcome your pet including a welcome bag! Grounds are well maintained and the rooms are just fantastic. Spacious and well furnished, comfortable furniture and our two person suite could have slept six people easily. Easy to get to all the local attractions and easy to find. Staff here was top notch, I own a timeshare with another company but they never treat me as well as this staff did. Hoping they sign up for next year's Eukanuba list of hotel choices will return for sure. Highly recommend!
